Nonprofits have it tough during these lean economic times. The average non-profit has seen its funding cut by 10 to 25 percent over the past few years.

And those providing services that are perceived as less critical are hit even harder.

Sadly, that means your nonprofit–whether it helps kids visit their parent in prison or helps people reenter society after incarceration–will be affected.

It’s likely to get worse.

Deeper state and federal budget cuts are imminent. And those even foundations that support nonprofits saw their own portfolios shrink during the economic crisis. They are now realigning their funding plans based on diminished resources.

But there’s no point in just trying to wait it out. It’s time to strategize a plan that will keep your programs strong to provide the support people deserve.

To help with that Greg Cohen from Cause Effective, a group that advices non-profits on fundraising and fiscal planning, will be guest on Family Life Behind Bars Radio next Tuesday, May 24 at 2:30.

He’ll be on hand to discuss:
• How nonprofits can try to get more done with less money;
• Or in the worst case scenario, how they can maintain programs despite the cuts;
• How nonprofits have dealt with similar deep cuts in the past;
• Alternate or untapped forms of funding.

Greg will also take your questions live on the show.

You won’t want to miss the valuable advice provided by Cause Effective’s senior associate.
